A Wonderful Childerley Wedding

30 March 2018

Love, laughter and tears were present all day at Karen and Joe’s wonderful Childerley Wedding.

Different ends of the beautiful Victorian Long Barn hosted separate ceremony and reception areas. This barn has the biggest ‘oh-wow’ factor we have ever seen!  Childerley looked after the wedding with professional dedication and care.

Joe proposed to Karen on the historic Southwold Pier in Suffolk. Having waited 13 years, Karen was an absolutely stunning bride in her David Tutera wedding dress. Her three bridesmaids wore beautifully elegant grey dresses which complemented the tweed jackets worn by the groom and his groomsmen.

We celebrated their wedding vows in style. One hundred friends and family were there to share in Karen and Joe’s promises of love and commitment. There was laughter and tears when we shared what Karen and Joe love about each other. We even laughed aloud in the vows when Karen deliberately over-emphasised the word HUSBAND in her vows!

Karen and Joe’s ceremony included a personally written reading by their children, which was met with happy cheers and applause. Their friends Tomi and Victoria played and sang a beautiful Adele track during the signing.

Fairylights on bay trees flanked the ceremony area and were a real feature in the reception area, along with the silver glittery accessories. Delicious food including an Eton Mess Bar was provided by Puddini Caterers and their mobile bar with LOTS of gin was set up by Banquet Inn.

Made by Keen for Cakes, their beautiful cake was surrounded by equally delicious cake pops.

The evening celebrations were accompanied by foot-stomping music by the Indietones and carriages at midnight brought the celebrations to a close.  Many happy memories were made and these will last a lifetime.

Our congratulations to Karen and Joe – a wonderful Childerley wedding that had it all.
